Pony is as divey as they come, and happens to be one of Seattle’s most popular gay bars as well. They’ve recently moved into a new location—a remodeled gas station—where there’s even a wonderful year-round patio! It has a retractable roof and gas fire pit so you can party rain or shine, winter or summer. The space at Pony is small, but that just adds to the fun. When visiting Pony, make sure to check the calendar for some fabulous events.

Recently relocated, CC Attle’s is the Capitol Hill LGBT hotspot for socializing over strong drinks at a great price.
